"support and defend the Constitution of the United States"

Those words are in the oath of office that every Senator and Congressman take. As of today a number of Senators are supporting a bill that would defy the Constitution and prevent our Justice Department from finally bringing terrorists to trial. The bill sponsored by Lindsey Graham cuts funding to try to force the Attorney General to stop planned criminal trials. Some of these terrorists have been held without trial for 8 years.

What has always given our country the moral authority when it comes to justice around the world is the fact that unlike many places in the world, we have a constitution that provides Fair trials to all, no matter how disgusting the crime was. For the first time in our History, we lost that authority in the world as the Bush Administration made a mockery of our Constitution and held prisoners without trial.

Americans rejected that, they elected Barack Obama. But now these Senators want to trash our Constitution and eliminate such trials as we have had in our country for over 200 years. It is a said day that we in America are actually debating having fair trials.

They took an oath of office saying they would support and defend the Constitution, apparently they have decided to break that oath.

Here are the names of some of those traitors to the Constitution:

Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Jim Webb, and Blanche Lincoln
